Portrait of Evelyn Di Giorgio

My paternal grandmother, always known to me as Grandma DiGi. I didn’t know until I was an adult that her mother Carmelina was actually the first Grandma DiGi. Then again, she didn’t know until age 50 that her official first name was Mafalda.

Grandma DiGi passed away in 2006 at age 90. When asked what she was like, my dad always says that she loved her family, and she loved to have fun.
